Žed (Thirst) (1989)

Thirst is a metamorphosis of the socialist realism way of existence and of its symbols. The story of a man facing his lost time and his indispensable future. It is also a video homage to Yugoslav black-wave films of the sixties. Thirst is also based on the 1965 film Three by Aleksander Petrovic.
A poetic and cruel drama, this video confronts life and death, the inability to fight against destiny. Documentary video shots using Macedonian imagery (Ohrid, early Christian/Byzantine centre and Turkish ambient) are juxtaposed with artificial video language and a new iconography. THIRST is an art video project that could be defined by the paradigm “red shining – blue history.”
